An oasis of relax at Tuscany

Category:

Located in Maremma, one of the most strikingly beautiful corners of Tuscany, the award-winning Terme di Saturnia Spa & Golf Resort is centred around an ancient travertine stone building on the site of a rich thermal spring which dates back beyond the Etruscan era. Set in a strategic position, 150 km north of Rome and 200 south of Florence, in the ultimate south border of the Tuscan region. Very few destinations can offer visitors art, tradition, history and sports – such as horse-riding and mountainbike trips – in an almost pristine landscape. The Maremma is a region containing the best of Italy: its hills, covered in thick undergrowth, defined by horizons of wild beauty; its sea, one of the clearest, is bordered by long uncrowded beaches such as Monte Argentario’s and Porto Ercole’s. The villages surrounding the resort seem to watch over everything from on high: Pitigliano, Saturnia, Montemerano, Manciano, Semproniano and Sovana are places where Etruscan, Medieval and Renaissance memories merge together in delightful harmony. Terme di Saturnia’s range of 128 elegantly appointed rooms and suites have been designed to create a harmonious habitat for mind and body, expressed in thoughtfully selected flooring, atmospheric lighting, and the warm tones of the fabrics and finishing, creating an ambience of total well-being. All rooms feature air conditioning, mini-bar, telephone, television, satellite TV and safe deposit box. Terme di Saturnia’s fine dining at Ristorante Aqualuce embraces the gastronomic tradition of the region, serving exceptional Tuscan fare bursting with strong, authentic flavours, together with a mouth-watering range of creative and beautifully presented international dishes. Recently awarded with One Michelin Star, Ristorante All’Acquacotta serves the Grande Carte where the Executive Chef Giuseppe Zibetti’s masterful menus are a wholehearted testament to the importance of incorporating the enjoyment of food into the journey to complete wellbeing.

The 53-treatment room, state-of-the-art SPA at Terme di Saturnia focuses on improving guests’ wellbeing through the five equally fundamental and integral elements of hydrotherapy, fitness, beauty, stress management and nutrition. For an atmosphere of total wellbeing, the spa’s design includes soothing interiors and chromotherapeutic lighting by Parisotto & Formenton Studio, and evocative installations by German artist Herbert Hamak. An extensive menu of specialist regenerative treatments is based on the therapeutic powers of the natural spring waters, including mud therapy, inhalation and Roman baths. The spa’s beauty menu includes a full range of massages, facials, body wraps and scrubs. A comprehensive medical spa offers a series of aesthetic therapies and innovative, personalised wellbeing programmes. The spa’s expertise in diagnostics and the anti-ageing process is embodied by the exclusive signature Medical and Anti-Oxidant Programmes, in which the most suitable treatments to preserve and repair are recommended accordingly. The guests are also advised on how to maintain a healthier, balanced lifestyle as part of a ‘take home’ formula, so that a deepened sense, and understanding, of their individual wellbeing lasts well beyond their time in Saturnia. A ‘world away from a spa’, The Ultimate is a private luxury relaxation area dramatically decorated in black and dark grey, offering guests the ultimate in exclusive treatments, such as the Oxygen Infusion and the Saturnia Gold Facial. All treatments incorporate Terme di Saturnia’s own skin care range, based on the plankton and minerals that are harvested from Satunia’s thermal springs.

The natural splendour of the Saturnia valley coupled with the mild climate of the Tuscan Maremma and the nearby hot springs, makes Terme di Saturnia’s golf course an ideal year-round golf destination. Terme di Saturnia’s environmentally friendly course is located just 100 metres from the hotel and is set over 70 hectares of Tuscan terrain, gently undulating with ascending and descending fairways. The 18-hole, par 72, 6,316 metre course features a pitching and putting green, and driving range with video camera facilities and high-tech analysis equipment for swing correction. The course has been expertly designed to be as ‘green’ as possible, incorporating conservation strategies, water resource management and environmental preservation from the outset of the planning and development of the new course. Designed by internationally-renowned architect Ronald Fream, the course features no artificial structures and is designed around natural geographical features such as the many small streams and waterways found throughout the 247 acre course. As a result of the preservation of natural habitats, indigenous wildlife such as deer, porcupines, hares, pheasants and many other indigenous bird species often greet early morning players. The Italian Golf Federation has awarded Terme di Saturnia Golf Club with its “Green Commitment – Landscape category” environmental award. This award was established by the Italian Golf Federation to raise awareness for golf clubs and players on environmental issues with the aim of sensitively integrating golf courses and the landscape. Terme di Saturnia Golf Club has been GEOCertified™ in April 2014 by the Golf Environment Organization the symbol of great golf environments worldwide – designating that a golf facility has met a credible standard in the areas of nature, water, energy, supply chain, pollution control, and community, and is committed to continually improve. GEO Certified™ is widely trusted and endorsed by a growing number of organizations and people, both inside and outside golf.
